Green Moss AquamarineAbout the CCOC

CCOC is the only organization in the world that permanently removes children from the contaminated areas surrounding Chernobyl.”

In 1990, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, heard the cries of the children affected by this disaster and urgently established CCOC. The goal of this group was to rescue the children of Chernobyl, bring them to Israel permanently, and care for them as they embarked on their new journey. This goal has remained steadfast throughout CCOC’s existence.

The first rescue flight miraculously occurred on August 3, 1990, when 196 children were flown to Israel and brought to CCOC’s campus. Since then, thousands of children have come through CCOC’s doors, where they receive housing, education and medical care in a loving, supportive environment.

Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl is the only organization in the world that brings children out of contaminated areas permanently. There are, however, children who cannot leave the Chernobyl region for a variety of reasons. To assist these children and their families, CCOC sends medicine, medical equipment, therapeutic aids and other necessary supplies to the contaminated areas. Additionally, CCOC has trained local physicians to treat radiation-induced illnesses and has built a mammography clinic to help combat the astronomically high rates of breast cancer in the area.

The Felix Organization was founded eight years ago by Rock ’n Roll Hall of Famer, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and Emmy Award winning casting director, Sheila Jaffe. Both adopted and grateful to have been “taken home”, they were compelled to use their resources and experience to enrich the lives of children growing up in the foster care system. They had no idea the impact this partnership would have on the lives of so many disadvantaged children. This summer, Felix will send its 1,000th child to Camp Felix, an overnight camp in Putnam Valley, NY designed to meet the unique needs of youth in foster care. Felix also sponsors Camp Felix West, a camp serving Los Angeles based foster youth and offers programs to help foster children in New York City reach their dreams throughout the year.
